Traditional hard wired systems are expensive to install and maintain, and take longer to install.  Stand-alone access control locks are a great way to avoid having to pay enormous amounts of money but still meet your needs and achieve your security goals quickly. Whether you are a residential or commercial customer, Phil-Rich Lock can help you save money, reduce installation costs, and save you the trouble of constant software maintenance and updates.  Let us help you gain control by recommending a cost-effective solution that will fit your needs and avoid those stressful surprises.

Phil-Rich Lock can professionally repair your door closer. Doors that slam can cause bodily injury and can even result in a missing finger. A door that slams can damage the door itself and the lock. A door that does not close all of the way can let unwanted mice and critters in and can also increase utility expenses.

Don’t use a generic door sweep from a big box store.  Allow Phil-Rich Lock to help you in choosing the proper product for your specific application.  Not all doors are the same, nor are door sweeps. Let Phil-Rick Lock customize door sweeps to your specific doors and frames and start saving money today! 



Business Owners and Facility Managers


The Original Pancake House has been turning to Phil -Rich Locksmiths for several years for all of our lock and safe work.  They are responsive, thorough and expert in every detail. I recommend them, without hesitation. 

Jeff Bulman, Owner


I first had the privilege of getting to know Rick Karas through our mutual membership in  Montgomery Power Partners. His professionalism and contributions at our weekly meetings led me to try his services for the Intelligent Office. We had been using the same vendor for 14 years but we were long overdue to make a necessary change so we retained Phil-Rich Locksmith. It was by far one of the best decisions we have made. We had been overcomplicating our process for years only to learn that it needed the personal attention of someone who understood our challenges. Rick made the transition process seamless and resolved our issues promptly. He proactively inventoried our antiquated system and made improvements by organizing and cataloging our entire system. No matter the size of your company or the scope of the project, Rick exemplifies exceptional customer service. With a simple phone call or email to Rick, he personally responds and delivers, making you feel you are his only client. If you are seeking a trustworthy expert who will offer excellent guidance and is an absolute pleasure to work with, you will want to retain Phil Rich Locksmith.

Phil-Rich Locksmiths are our go-to company for all our needs. The owner, Rick Karas came himself and installed high-security door locks at our office and we cannot be happier. We were so happy with Phil-Rich, I used them to change all the locks on my personal and vacation home. No need to look elsewhere…Phil-Rich Locksmith is the best!

Prompt, highly qualified, expert service and reasonably priced.  I have used Phil-Rich Locksmiths for a variety of jobs, from safes, cipher locks to automatic handicap door openers and every time has been a 5-star experience.  I keep these guys on speed dial for all my locksmith requirements in my facility, and I have put them to the test, calling them on weekends, middle of the night and early mornings, they show up promptly and with the right equipment the first time.  They’re great people with an old school approach to business, the customer comes first.
